How do you feel about reparations?????

Would you support that government idea for giving black Americans reparations?

I mean Jews and Native Americans both recieve those, but what about black Americans and slavery?

and Al Sharpton was owned in slave times by Storm Thurmond, so should we make him in charge of dealing with who is to recieve those due to direct experience?

your take?

I feel pretty strongly about people who think it's cool to use FIVE question marks where one is enough. As far as reparations go, I'm not sure. I am British, and my country made a lot of money out of slavery, but right now we are rather strapped for cash, and I don't think we could afford a big payout. On the other hand, the money would probably get spent back into the economy. One question might be whether it would end up benefitting the wrong people.

What reparations do you allege Jews receive? Are you another one of those closet Jew-haters who try to slip in slurs against Jews whenever you trot out some other agenda?

Do Natives get reparations? I doubt they've even got an official "sorry".

@mt774,
You haven't received an answer because your questioning post was so full of mistakes, errors in fact and just plain horseshit.

At least 147, by my count. Incedently, Strom... Thurmond must have died at a grand old age of around 160-170. We must remember though that we are talking about biblical times here people.

I mean Sharpton's family were owned by Thurmond's family while slave.

It seems most of you guys only wish to not take serious the concerns of black Americans, but you will take serious Jewish.

You didn't ask a question. You asked five questions. And you attempted to give those questions some significance with some pretty dubious claims (which, regardless of their placement, will always precede the question). If you have a question, maybe just ask the question. So what is your question?

@mt774,
I think every former living slave deserves reparations. These reparations should be paid by their former master or mistress, if they are still alive.

@Green Witch,
Ditto what Green Witch wrote. Find some living former slaves and former owners and force the former slave owners to pay up.

Do you think black Americans should be given reparations for slavery?

Well, Khalid Muhammad said Jews recieved some form of reparations, and Natives with their casinos and such. But no record of slavery reparations being given. Why?
